Trench drains are usually designed as long, grated linear drains that are recessed into the ground or artificial surface. The surface is generally graded towards the drain opening, allowing water to be quickly evacuated from the area. The grates atop the trench drain play the double role of providing pedestrians and vehicles a safe and flush surface on which to walk and drive and ensuring that the drain does not become clogged with excess debris.
In the modern world, trench drains are used in a variety of applications. They are used to reduce slip hazards on surfaces that are prone to build up water, protect property from flooding and damage, protect and extend the life of paved surfaces and foundations, and, in areas where there is a significant amount of rain and other precipitation, they are used to prevent cars from hydroplaning on roads.
Trench drains are better suited to a number of environs than a square catch basin drain. Catch basin drains require the surface that needs draining to be graded in awkward and complex ways, leaving an uneven appearance and creating a possible safety hazard. In addition, the piping of a catch basin drain of any shape is not easily accessible and is therefore prone to clogging and costly repair. Have any questions about trench drains in South Lake Tahoe? We can help!
Trench drains, also known as slotted drains or channel drains are ideally suited for driveways, where square drains are nearly useless. Trench drains offer a neat, clean linear appearance that can border a driveway or house to protect the foundation.
Like many products out there, not all trench drainage systems are created equal. When considering a type or brand of trench drain, it is important to understand the difference in materials used, labor required, and the estimated longevity of the drain. Also, it is really important to consider the type of traffic that the drain is going to be subjected to. If the drain is going to be driven over on a regular basis, you need to be sure that it can handle the forces. See our Heavy Duty Commercial Drains Here.

My wife, Sharon, and I are dedicated to preserving the clarity of Lake Tahoe, one of the largest alpine lakes in the world—which is where we live and work. In fact, that’s why we named our company LTEC. It stands for Lake Tahoe Environmental Construction. Our goal is to help control the man-made unnatural and unmanaged flow of polluted dirty water into the Lake which is threatening its famed clarity.
“It is a privilege to help restore Lake Tahoe to its former glory through the work we do at LTEC. Let us help you be “green” in South Lake Tahoe and the surrounding communities you live and work in with our superior product and dedication to the environment.”
For years, Tahoe’s clarity has been declining at a disturbing rate. Multiple factors contribute to this problem. Some, like storms, floods, tectonic movement, warm lake temperatures, air pollution, fire, shoreline erosion, and drought followed by extreme precipitation are beyond human control. But for the factors we CAN control, this decline has stabilized due to significant investments in environmental restoration and stormwater treatment systems designed by local “green” companies like LTEC Trench Drains.
LTEC Surface Drains is at the forefront of green technology. Unlike plastic or poly trench drains, LTEC galvanized steel drains withstand intense environmental conditions such as UV ray exposure and extreme heat and freezing conditions.
LTEC Drains have a life expectancy that exceeds 20-30 years in most rural
environments and even in severe urban and coastal areas. LTEC Drains comply with California and Nevada environmental regulations, (Best
Management Practices or BMP’s) that help maintain the clarity of the Lake and preserve water purity through storm water quality control measures which reduce pollutants into the Lake.
Of course, our environmental impact goes beyond the shores of Lake Tahoe. Our proven success here has inspired contractors and home owners across the country to install LTEC trench drains in virtually every application where runoff has to be captured, controlled and conveyed. With over 500,000 feet of drain installed throughout the country, LTEC Drains have proven to be a high quality, effective, sustainable product for virtually all runoff applications.
